forward pressure look px 12

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just picked up a pair of enforcers on eBay already mounted with look px 12 bindings. They were originally mounted for bsl 325 and I'm at 327. So I moved the heel pieces back slightly, but I'm not sure if I'm getting an accurate reading on the forward pressure.

There's a yellow dial that looks like it should fall in between some marks, but I can't really tell if it's moving at all when I adjust the heel piece.

Is there any screw adjustment I should be turning once my boots are clicked in?

I worked in a shop about 8 years ago, but we didn't carry Look bindings, so with that lack of knowledge, and the years since I've adjusted any bindings (marker, salomon, tyrolia) I'm not sure I'm doing this right. I know it should be fairly simple, but I want to get it right...

Do I need to make any adjustment on the toe piece?

Your yellow marker should show about half yellow and half black. If you see too much yellow you need to move them forward. Too much black and you need to move them back. It should fall somewhere in between. If it looks like it isn't moving you should move the heel piece forward one more click. There isn't a toe piece adjustment. Let me know if that helps.

It's the same principle that the Salomon heel piece uses if you were familiar with those. Only instead of a metal piece you have the yellow bar indicator.

325 to 327 may not even need an adjustment. Most forward pressure indicators give you about 2mm of slop.

Perfect! Thanks everybody, I had the heel back too far. Of course two different spots fall in the range, I set it to less forward pressure (more yellow showing), but I'm interested in any feedback. I've never had Look bindings and I'm sure people here have some opinion.

Either position shouldn't make that much difference.

How much does this binding adjust when mounted, and is there a standard amount that most alpine bindings do?  If my boots are 305bsl, will those px12 mounted for 317bsl adjust enough to not need a remount?  Sorry, I come from a backcountry background and haven't had alpine bindings since I was a kid... 

in other words, if I buy a used ski mounted with alpine bindings, how close would the typical binding need to be to my bsl?

thanks!

Small metal tab on the heel, pry up with flat head and move.

They can move about 1cm forward and super far back.
